Being a metropolis of concrete canyons and vibrant neon signs, Hong Kong is every inch a bustling cosmopolitan city. Few are aware that within this concrete city, there are actually plenty of amazing hiking trails and hidden villages waiting for all to discover.

Hiking in Hong Kong might sound ludicrous but judging from its gifted natural setting of three-quarters countryside, rugged hills, islands and islets, there are indeed many well-maintained trails ranging from gentle family walks to tough, long distance trails. Dragon’s Back hike is one of the top walks in Hong Kong which offers panoramic views of southern Hong Kong Island and its neighbouring islands.

To top off a unique Hong Kong experience, this tour will bring you to the walled villages of the outskirts that have existed since the Ming and Qing Dynasties. A living museum on their own, these walled villages have many hidden secrets behind those imposing high walls.

Join us on this tour to see another facet of Hong Kong that you have never seen before! It is more than dim sum and duty-free shopping.
